Learning a second language
By : Emily Mckenna... Period: 1
What age do people normally learn their second language?
It is very common for children that are living in the environment of language, to begin speaking it.
~ They are surrounded by the language
~ They learn to speak it by hearing it
Why is it easier and better to learn a second language when you're younger?
Advantages learning it younger..
- More like to develop the accent in the language
- More time, and more likely to receive input that you're able to use
- The brain is not fully grown and is still open for the language to process it
Overall being bilingual or learning a second language is a process that takes time.. Age defines how well it will process through your mind, and how well you will remember it. Children who are bilingual have a longer time period to remember it but, they can speak more fluently and keep progressing through the years.
